Five-Buckle Baldric

49.00€

The baldric is a classic accessory for carrying a rapier or a sword. A favorite way to wear a sword since biblical times, the use of the baldric continued well into the 17th century. While much of the weight of the sword rested on the hip, the shoulder strap provided extra support from the opposite side of the body. This added balance and comfort. Assyrians, Romans and Vikings are all shown in contemporary art wearing baldrics.

This European Baldric can also be worn as a regular belt and sword hanger if you prefer to carry your sworn on the hip.

This belt is made of heavy leather for years of wear. The sword holder will accommodate scabbards of most sizes, as the five adjustable straps allow for a large variety of sword widths. The hanging steepness is adjustable, making the sword always at its right place, regardless of the carrier or the sword. This hanger is suitable only to be used on left side (for right handed warriors that is).

Length of belt approx. 132 cm, belt width approx 4 cm.
